Cluster Sound New Products
Cluster Sound Launches SST-282 Convo, CS-Sigma & CS-SX1000 Multi-Sampled Synthesizers.
The 3 new libraries are quite different from the previous ones and represent a new approach to Cluster Sound multi-sampled libraries.
- XP11 - CS-Sigma
- XP12 - CS-SX1000
- XP13 - SST-282 Convo
CS-Sigma & CS-SX1000
CS - Sigma & CS - SX1000 are two multi-sampled synthesizers based on Kontakt KSP engine. According to Cluster Sound, users can directly control in few clicks lot of Kontakt parameters and store their customized patches. The user interfaces are organized in 5 sections that allow users to choose their favourite filter and apply to it an LFO oscillator, to choose and apply insert effects and much more. CS - Sigma & CS - SX1000 consist of 1000 WAV samples recorded from the analog vintage Korg Sigma & Jen SX-1000.
CS-Sigma & CS-SX1000 parameters :
SYNTH : Detune - Spread - Filter Menu (LP6 - LP2 - BP4 - HP4 - Phazor) - Cutoff - Resonance - Attack - Decay - Sustain - Release
FILTER ENV: Cutoff / Resonance (Attack - Decay - Sustain - Release)
FILTER LFO: Cutoff LFO Menu (Sine - Rectangle - Saw) - Resonance LFO Menu (Sine - Rectangle - Saw) - Amount - Frequency - Fade - Pulse Width
PITCH LFO: Pitch LFO Menu (Sine - Rectangle - Saw) - Amount - Frequency - Fade - Pulse Width - Pitch DBD (Decay1 - Break - Decay2)
EFFECTS : LoFI - Distortion - Phaser - Flanger - Chorus - Limiter
Space Station Convo
In 1979 a small company called Ursa Major introduced a very strange and wondrous signal processor called the Space Station (SST-282), a vintage machine designed for echo, ambience, and reverb effects. Cluster Sound SST-282 Convo is a stylish convolution library for Kontakt, based on a real Ursa Major machine and designed for vintage echno and reverb effects simulation. Cluster Sound team has stored 225 settings and recorded two different IR impulse types for each setting (Low + High impulses) and the result is a reverb plugin which emulates the deep, warm and mysterious sound of this rare vintage machine.
